The Great Forest Fire
“Once upon a time, there was a beautiful forest where all the animals lived and thrived. Animals lived in harmony- the bear, the fox, the owl, and even the tiny hummingbird.
One day, a great and terrible fire consumed the forest. All the animals fled their homes. The animals huddled at the edge of the forest and watched the forest blaze. The squirrel, the frog, the raven, and the elk, and all the creatures gathered. All except one. Read More “Plastic-Free July Eco-Challenge, Day 6: Be a Hummingbird”
Before the angry CrossFit cult (WE’RE NOT A CULT!) comes to get me, let me start with a couple positives. Read More “The Issue With CrossFit”
I am by no means a religious person (much to the dismay of some members of my family). But while visiting my family I usually go to church with them. I’m supportive of their devotion. It’s where they find happiness. I want to spend time with my parents. Going to church is one of those quality times I spend with them. Plus, my mom enjoys showing me off (I’m not sure why, yet), and I enjoy meeting their friends. Read More “Love Thy Enemy”

Goals. We all have them. January 1st is the year to make them. February 10th seems like the average day of the year we forget about them.
Not me. Not this time. I have ACTION PLANS!!!! Read More “Making 2019 My, Well, You Know….”
As we tick ever so closer to the new year, I find myself getting more and more anxious, excited, and hopeful for 2019. I keep saying “THIS year will be MY year”, only to falter on some of my goals. But this time is different. This time I have tangible opportunities to win over an enthusiastic audience all over the country with ZooFit. Read More “Looking Ahead to 2019”
Yeah, I was super tempted to name this blog “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly”, but that’s not the ZooFit mentality.
My slogan (motto? mantra?) is “Eat clean, live green, train positive”. I could have easily said “Train Mean”, which is what many fitness programs promote. It’s a cutesy way to tell people you will be a bad-ass if you train with them, AND it rhymes. But animal trainers don’t think that way. We train positive.

I’m going through some old photos of when I first started on my fitness journey, and I’ve got to say, I don’t know if I’m saddened or motivated. Read More “Throwback Thursday”
